Kelly should understand that and he should have moved in a different direction. However, his ego is too monumental. He believes he can take an also-ran and turn him into a winning quarterback.
After finding out that Mark Sanchez signed a one-year contract with the Eagles, Boomer and Carton wonder why the Jets didn’t bring him back.
“We don’t pencil anything in right now,” Jets general manager John Idzik told WFAN co-hosts Boomer Esiason and Craig Carton on Thursday morning. “We let things play out and so many things can happen.”
The Jets head coach delivered quote after quote on Tuesday, sounding as confident as ever after finishing last season with a surprising 8-8 record.
Like Smith before him, Boomer once called signals for Gang Green and when he did so, he too wore the No. 7 – see where this is going?
In a perfect world, the Jets would be equipping Geno Smith — and only Geno Smith — for the 2014 season. Only they aren’t, and I can’t say I blame them. But their plan at quarterback will end up being a wise decision.
The New York Jets have released quarterback Mark Sanchez, as expected. But wait, there’s more!
The Jets’ decision Friday evening to cut quarterback Mark Sanchez and sign Michael Vick marked the end of an era for fans.
In other words, the free-agent QB won’t be immediately typecast as a backup. But he shouldn’t expect to be handed the starting job, either.
Jets GM John Idzik needs to make a signing here. He should do it because, quite honestly, Geno Smith is not the answer at quarterback.
The Jets agreed to terms on Wednesday with the former Broncos wide receiver, considered by many the top free agent at his position after two seasons catching passes from Peyton Manning.
Simms said the Jets would be crazy to use a pick early on a quarterback, further enforcing the belief that the best way to get the most out of Smith in his second year is to sign a capable veteran free agent to challenge him.
As far as the fans and many in the media go, it is almost a foregone conclusion that Mark Sanchez will not return to the Jets for a sixth season. And yet it may not be that simple. Nor, frankly, should it be.
For all those who believe the Jets need a legitimate veteran quarterback to push incumbent Geno Smith in training camp, there might be a solution in the works. Michael Vick, anyone?
According to a report, general manager John Idzik is interested in free-agent-to-be Josh McCown, who was excellent for the Bears after Jay Cutler went down with an injury.
